Steve Evans: "This is our Force Link playset. So playsets are back. We have heard a lot of people saying, 'bring playsets back.' We also did a lot of testing with kids - and Star Wars is about characters and ships going to world's - so world was very important." 

Steve Evans: "You've got a load of stuff going on here: you've got different levels, you’ve got a throne room, a hangar bay, all these little areas and walkways."

Steve Evans: And downstairs you've got a dungeon area where you can lock your guys up, you've got a little interrogation chair. Do a little torture.You have got things like collapsible walkways, sound effects You've always got to have a trap door in a playset, and the trap door goes down to the dungeon. Here are guns, firing projectile guns that activate sound. There are background sounds where that sound like battles, and even got classic sound effects."

Steve Evans: "Snoke is pretty tall, I think about 7 foot 1. We were asking a lot since he is obviously a hologram and you ask: Is he 20 feet tall? Is he normal sized?"

Steve Evans: "One of the principles that we want to bring back was that playsets are about play, not just plastic. There's usually a lot of plastic involved, so what we did was we created this almost 'room buddy'. So it's BB-8 that you can keep in your room. It's pretty good sized, and it talks to you when you press the button." 

Steve Evans: "And then very simply you pull the head up and around and you open it up and it becomes this playset. So you completely get rid of the BB-8 shape, but you still have a good, meaningful playset. So if the kid wants to finish and doesn't want the playset out all the time, then he can pack the playset up and have BB-8 back."

Steve Evans: "Force Link is built on the inside, the bolt kits, we did it. Kids are doing it now, making up their own sounds, and we thought that's really cool. What if we could augment that with a little bit of tech? So we are putting an RFID communicator reader on the wrist that stores all the sounds of 30 plus toys in there. So the usual kind of play pens that kids always want: exploding things, and firing projectiles mixed in with a little bit of high-tech wizardry. So we are really excited because it is adding tech into it without really adding any bulky stuff into the figures. It's just 3 AAA's and you're done. There are two ways that you can get the wristband; with the Starter Set for $24.99, and the larger playset, we are actually including that in it as well. So if you go in that deep and big and buy that one thing, you’ve got the playset, you’ve got the Force Link, and you’ve got the Praetorian Guard and Snoke as well as figures."
